All you need to know in one place. a handy guide to get you safe and sound from stein am rhein to schaffhausen.
WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW
DO NOT TIE BOATS Together
Please don't tie your boats / flamingos / other floating aids together. It'll make maneuvering almost impossible, increasing the risk of harm. By a lot.
GREEN IS FOR
See those posts in the river? They're called Wiffen. They're there for course ship navigation. They will not budge if you collide with them. Think that doesn't sound too bad? Here's why it's a problem.
DISTANCE FROM WIFFEN
Keep your distance from anything larger than you. This includes boats and course ships. Brakes are not a thing on the water, so not getting in the way will obviously save your life.
You'll need this
By law you'll need a couple of things with you when you're boating on the Rhine.
A life jacket with 100N buoyancy
Your name and phone number must be on your floating device
You need to be maneuverable (meaning good paddles are a good idea)
includes SUPs, rubber boats, flamingos and a host of other floating devices.
The following things are not mandatory but still useful:
A waterproof bag or container
Something to eat
Please plan accordingly
From Stein am Rhein to Diessenhofen
3 – 5 Houres
5 – 7 Houres
From Stein am Rhein To Schaffhausen
ENJOY YOUR DAy
DON'T BE #ZDOOF
Fun on the Rhine is for everyone.
Young, old, and even the #toostupid ones enjoy the refreshing water, especially during summer. Unfortunately, accidents happen again and again. It actually turns out that almost all accidents can be avoided if you don't act "zdoof/toostupid".
But instead of complaining 24/7, we’re drawing attention to the dangers in a casual and oh well, hopefully, funny way.
With this, we want to lead an unagitated dialogue, which should animate everyone to remember a few elementary rules. While you’re at it why not pass your knowledge along.
